What do you think can be made out of corrugated paper? Check out the 3D Corrugated Paper Quilling Flowers below. Don’t they look just wonderful?
Corrugated cardboard adds a lovely texture to crafts, like in these 3D Corrugated Sheet Quilled Flowers. I love to use craft materials in a way that is different from what its intended purpose is. So when I saw that the latest kit from Itsy Bitsy contained Corrugated sheets in lovely colors, I decided not to make a collage and instead made some large 3D Corrugated sheet Quilled Flowers. The idea behind that was simple. Whenever we visited the Itsy Bitsy Store in HSR, my daughter used to love the quilled flowers on display there. Quilling, however, was a little tough for my 6-year-old to handle. So I thought why not use corrugated sheets instead.

To make –
- Take the A4 sheets and cut them into 1/2 inch strips.
- Make sure you cut along the short edge to get a lovely zig zag pattern against the grain on the strip.
- The advantage of using an A4 sheet is that the length is the same for each strip & you can cut it as wide as you want the 3D effect to be.
- For the petals, roll each strip in a loose circular fashion and glue the end in place.
- We used a hot glue gun. You can use craft glue like Fevicol also.
- Once the glue dries, pinch one end to form a petal-like shape.
- The key to getting a nice petal shape is to roll the strip loose.
- For the center, tightly roll the yellow strip and glue in place.
- Now arrange the petals in a circular arrangement around the center and glue in place. Let dry.
- Make as many flowers as you wish. You will need 6 strips to make 1 flower.
- To give it some shading, we used lovely soft pastels to give it depth
- Cut the green into leaf shapes.
- cut some petal shapes from the corrugated sheets and stick them on the front.
- Add some stems by rolling a black sheet into small pipes.
- Then I arranged the flowers in a glass with some pebbles and a corrugated strip tied to the center of it.
